§ 129.1007. Certification.
(a) If the Bureau determines that the applicant-employers committees meets the requirements, it will send a letter of certification approval to the applicant-employer. The Bureau will grant certification approval to an applicant-employer who, by signing the acknowledgements and agreements page of the application, agrees to continue to operate the workplace safety committee according to all requirements upon which initial certification is based. The employer may not disband committees except for valid business reasons.
(b) The insured applicant-employer shall submit a copy of the letter of certification approval to its insurer to receive an initial 5% reduction of its workers compensation premium. The reduction will be effective upon the commencement of the policy renewal period next following the date of Bureau certification. An applicant-employer who is a member of a group self-insurance fund established to grant a 5% reduction in annual member contributions, shall submit a copy of the letter of certification to its group self-insurance fund administrator to receive the initial 5% contribution reduction. The reduction will be effective at the commencement of the next group self-insurance fund year following certification.
(c) The Bureau will notify the Pennsylvania Compensation Rating Bureau of approved insured applicant-employers.
(d) If an application is disapproved, the applicant-employer will receive written notification listing specific reasons for disapproval. The applicant-employer may resubmit a corrected application for reconsideration prior to the renewal of its workers compensation policy, self-insurance renewal year or group self-insurance fund year. The applicant-employer may challenge the disapproval determination under Subchapter G (relating to hearings).
